Current surgical therapies for Ebstein anomaly (EA) are unable to address the underlying right ventricular myopathy inherent to the disease. We have designed a phase I clinical trial utilizing autologous bone marrow derived mononuclear cells (BM-MNC) administered at the time of elective surgical repair in patients with EA in attempt to re-engineer cellular and physiologic features within the native right ventricle. This video will highlight an overview of the clinical trial, intramyocardial cell delivery following Cone repair, and early outcomes.
